El Paso is 2 days away from demolition weekend, but a group of UTEP students say they are interested in building up business here, and they know how to do it.

David Sterling is one of the driving forces behind a group of students in UTEP’s College of Business who formed a group called Regional Economic Development Association. The organization was formed by students who wanted to not just sit and complain about El Paso, but to actually make change.

The group created an online magazine called Regional Identity.  Students write articles about what is going on in El Paso’s business, political, academic and economic communities. They hope that by sharing students thoughts on current events, they can make change and create jobs, get better entertainment venues, and just make El Paso a better place to live.

The UTEP Regional Economic Development Association is having an event in which 40 student entrepreneurs will start a technology company over the course of 3 days.  The students hope to show that starting up local technology businesses will help spur out-of-town interest in El Paso.  You can get more details about 3 Day Start Up happening this weekend at UTEP by clicking here.
